Hi ,

My name is***** am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.

I will be glad to assist you with this.

Kindle displays the items you've downloaded on the Home screen. Books not on your Kindle remain available in your Archived Items. If you deleted a book from your account, but still have the book on your device, I have provided instructions below on deleting the book.

To remove an item from your Kindle device:

1. From the Home screen, move the 5-way controller to underline the item you want to remove.
2. Move the 5-way controller to the left.
3. Select "Remove from Device."

To permanently remove a title from your Kindle account:
1. Locate the item you wish to delete in the Your Kindle Library section of Manage Your Kindle (
2. Click on "Delete from Library" in the "Actions" menu to permanently remove the title.

After the title is removed from your account, you will no longer have access to re-download this title unless you re-purchase it. Existing copies of this title already on your device must be manually removed.
